KINDER (Deutschland 2019, Nina Wesemann, Münchner Premieren). A moment’s pause on the threshold between childhood and youth. Marie, Arthur, Emine and Christian are living in this state of limbo in Berlin, unbeknownst to each other. A filmic snapshot that engages with their wild, unfamiliar world.
OUT OF PLACE (Deutschland 2019, Friederike Güssefeld, DOK.deutsch). The future does not really look bright for three German adolescents who are classed as “incapable of being integrated.” As part of an educational project they are sent away to Romania, made to do physical work and confront their past and future.
THINKING LIKE A MOUNTAIN (Deutschland, Kolumbien 2018, Alexander Hick, Münchner Premieren). For 500 years, the Arhuacos have been defending their home in the Columbian highlands. In landscape images reminiscent of Werner Herzog’s AGUIRRE, DER ZORN GOTTES, Alexander Hick masterfully portrays the remote struggle of the indigenous people.
